We'll check in for Air Greenland’s flight to Ilulissat in the morning. Upon arrival and transfer to the town, we check in at Hotel Hvide Falk. The hotel is situated at the waterfront with an impressive view over the Disco Bay where stray icebergs from the Icefjord, located just south of town, float by the windows. Restaurants, museums, shops and the harbour are all within walking distance.
The town of Ilulissat is picturesque, lively, and inviting. By Greenlandic standards it offers many cultural sights that - apart from the birthplace and museum of arctic explorer Knud Rasmussen - include a hunting and fishing museum and a fine collection of paintings of Emanuel A. Petersen. Since Ilulissat was founded more than 250 years ago, it has steadily grown and is today Greenland’s third largest city with more than 4000 inhabitants. Our tour leader will guide us on a walking tour through the town, showing us iconic sights such as the Zion Church and the fish market, and giving us an overall introduction to the town and all the possible activities to be done in the area.
